That's just an excuse everyone knows OSU and Michigan go to Big time bowl games to die, see 06 you guys were both undefeated headed against each other and both got your doors blown off in your bowl games.

Show me these actual "national polls" (from reputable sources) that says Texas/OU > Ohio State/UM. And note that the Dallas Observer and Bleacher Report doesn't count.
I've got a couple and they're reknowned sports sources.
Bottom line is this: Auburn-Alabama fans don't care about Michigan-Ohio State, Michigan-Ohio State fans don't care about Texas-OU, Texas-OU fans don't care about USC-ND, etc, etc, bc rivalries typically only matter to the two teams involved. I don't give a rat's fat ass about the Celtics-Lakers or Yankees-Red Sox. I'm not a fan of either team.
Who cares what polls say UM has 1/2 NC in 50 years and OSU has 1 NC in 40 years... that pretty much says its all...
That was 06

Yeah i know i typed the wrong number, I'm just sayin if you guys don't win NC i can't give you the best rivalry; the winner of the Auburn Alabama game has gone on to win the NC 3 st8 years..
When i was younger OSU And UM was amazing, Joe germaine katzenmoyer, nai'll diggs david steroid boston but now its fallen off..
that was 06.....
I believe 10 perfect seasons have been ruined in the game total
Okay...and that'll be Auburn's only national title for quite a while. Every year besides that has been Bama destroying a mediocre Auburn team. And before Saban, it was Auburn destroying terrible Bama teams.

I have a counter statement Aub vs. Alabama met in the past 3 years the winner of that game also won the NC and he could also happen for the 4th year in the row..
What that shows is the better teams wins.
In a rivalry the better team doesn't always win. There are historic upsets and dream seasons are ruined.
That's a big part of what makes a rivalry great.

Auburn is 7-3 against Alabama in the past 10 and the Crimson tide only edge Auburn 41-34 overall..
Bama wasn't even mediocre before Saban....they were terrible.
IF Michigan was Alabamas rival they wouldn't beat Bama either so your tryin to tell me that if Bama and Michigan were the biggest rivals the score of that Alabama and Michigan would be different?
There's another word for that it's called choking..
Go Blue and Go Titans!
You obviously don't understand a rivalry.
Not shocking coming from a "new money" guy.
You guys said that the reason why your team hasn't won a NC game is bc of the rivalry, therefore using that same logic If Alabama was Michigans biggest rival the score of this year's game would be different...
I don't know about that. We weren't world beaters every year, but during our worst two decades we still managed a lot and a NC each one.

"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
The civilized world..
Two years of it being an important game on the schedule doesn't make it rivalry...rivalries are border wars or in-state wars that have historical meaning.
I was talking more about the early 2000s when Tubberville coached Auburn. I know you guys were pretty good in the 90s
Yeah, I was a student down there during that. Bad times. Nothing like crossing your fingers going into the games against Southern Miss, Duke, and Northern Illinois. Sigh. I wonder sometimes if these students nowadays realize how damn good they really have it.
